Hello, I’ve been having problems recently and have been going through a very difficult time. I am a good looking guy, but I’ve always struggled with self-esteem and social anxiety. My mother did some EMDR therapy that helped her with some similar issues and I am wondering if it would be a good choice for me. Basically, I am sick of being me, I feel trapped, and I want this wall to be gone.
Thank you for contacting Insight Psychological. You are definitely not alone in your struggles. Low self-esteem and social anxiety are common issues that bring people into our office.
EMDR is an excellent therapeutic approach, but there are also several other approaches that are just as effective in dealing with issues surrounding self-esteem and anxiety. It is difficult to say what approach would be best for you until you meet with a therapist to discuss such matters. I suggest you make an appointment with one of our therapists who are trained in EMDR and go from there.
All the best,
